Manchester United star Alexis Sanchez throws tantrum after substitution against Burnley

By Mirror: Monday, September 3rd 2018 at 12:50 GMT +3 | Premier League

Manchester United got back to winning ways at Burnley, but not without incident.

Jose Mourinho's men thoroughly deserved their 2-0 victory thanks to a double from Romelu Lukaku, but they still managed to miss a penalty through Paul Pogba and have Marcus Rashford sent off.

Nonetheless, their second Premier League success of the season lifted them to 10th place and eased the pressure on Jose Mourinho somewhat, even on a day when much of the focus was on the banner directed at executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Mourinho was in a cheerful mood after the game, but the same can't really be said for Alexis Sanchez in the second half.


The Chilean had played well in his hour on the pitch - setting up the first of Lukaku's brace - but when he was withdrawn for Rashford at Turf Moor it was impossible to miss his reaction.

Looking glum, Sanchez sat down on the bench and removed the tape from his socks, throwing it on the ground.
